About me

I’m a filmmaker living in Conway, AR, where I work as a Lecturer at the University of Central Arkansas.  Courses I’ve taught include: Cinematography, Script Analysis, Introduction to Film, Classical Film Theory, Graduate Seminar: Producing the Motion Picture, and Electronic Media Applications.  I also run the University’s cable TV station, Channel 6.  When I’m not working I enjoy cycling, motion graphics, 3d art, and photography.  I am a strong proponent of creative commons and endorse an artistic community that is open to sharing, learning, teaching, and collaboration.
